BlueNote shows that the trial has expired

New trial expired?

If you are new to BlueNote Lights and the software expired the first time you ran it, then Windows did not have adequate permissions to start the trial properly. 

1
  If BlueNote is running, shut it down completely by choosing  Menu >  Shutdown.

2
  Locate the BlueNote icon on your desktop, right-click on it, and choose "Run As Administrator."     The trial should set itself to 30 days and begin the trial countdown.

If this does not work, then it means that you will need a license to use BlueNote Lights past the trial period. Once the license is added to your network, all clients will receive the license and begin working again.


Already Purchased?

Have you already purchased, but don't have a license on one or more BlueNote clients? BlueNote has a built-in ability to automatically register new BlueNote clients as they are added to your network. This way you never have to keep up with registration codes. Any licensed BlueNote client can be set up to register all other clients.

Here's a licensed BlueNote client compared to an unlicensed client:

The program may also display a trial countdown or "Trial Expired" notification in the same location, which is also an indication that there is no license present on the BlueNote client.

IMPORTANT: You will need to go to a computer other than an unregistered one in order to have the ability to choose the Advanced Registration feature.

Setting a licensed BlueNote client to Auto Register:

Choose  MenuPreferences > Advanced then click the Advanced Registration button. In the Registration window check the box that says "Automatically register clients" and then close the window. 

This will perpetually license all other computers running BlueNote on your network going forward.

Please note that these steps can only be performed from a BlueNote client that is already registered, and not the one being registered. 

If neither of these options helped, then the lack of licensing is a symptom that your unlicensed BlueNote clients cannot communicate with the licensed ones. Be sure to look through the Support options to help you figure out what's not working properly on your BlueNote client.
